depends on the paint. some paint jobs get wet sanded the same day (with bake booths), or the next day...some paint jobs sit for a year, or 2..................or 3 or 4, before they get wet sanded.
depends on the paint job, and the car. but in most cases, its done within 24-48 hours after the final coat of clear.

DOES IT REALLY SHOW A BIG DIFFERENCE?
Look around and find someone with experience cuttin & buffin. try the local bodyshops. and like tattoo 76 said, it really depends on what you are trying to achieve, what paint products where used, etc.Originally posted by tearazz@Oct 2 2007, 05:37 PM~8918200

some of the BADDEST paint jobs you will ever see on a lowrider, actually sat for over a year before it was cut. Alot of intricate multi stage (and multi chemical) paint jobs NEED to sit and shrink before they are cut.
Im sure some people WILL NOT agree, but it depends on who you know, who you learn from, and how good the person teaching you is.
There is also a HUGE difference between a simple base/clear/single color candy paint job compared to a multi color, multi base, flake, pearl, pattern, pin stripe, etc etc paint job. And even then, a solid black car can benefit from letting the paint shrink several months before its cut and buffed. And again, Im sure some people would argue with that. Its like I said, it all depends on WHAT the paint job is. 90% of all paint jobs can be cut and buffed the day after they are sprayed. Some can be cut and buffed the same day, but some of the baddest paint jobs out there have sat a year or longer before they were wet sanded and buffed out.
i recomend haveing the same shop do a car start to finish, if you have one shop for paint and take it somewhere else to wet wetsanded and if it burns thru the wetsand guy will blame the painter for not putting enough paint or clear on, and the painter will blame the wetsander for sanding too much, when its all done by the same shop there is no blame gameOriginally posted by tearazz@Oct 3 2007, 04:54 PM~8925245
yeah thanks....but i just need a shop to take my car and get it done....anywhere in the NYC or N.J. area
